This DIY Bookshelf Craft Makes a Painting-Like Set of Shelves

This unconventional DIY bookshelf craft holds books in a small wooden rectangular or square boxes, which were then covered with decorative frames. The effect creates an interesting illusion, particularly when you look at the shelves standing right in front of them straight on — it’s almost like you’re looking at a still life painting of book spines, or whatever other decorative objects are inside.

The craft can be quite easily put together, since both the boxes and the frames to contain the books could be found at a thrift store, then it's only a matter of putting the two pieces together.

The shelves are a creation of the ‘Change of Scenery’ blog, as part of a living room makeover. These interesting photo frame shelves are certainly an interesting way to add depth to a room.
